    What type of arrow rests do you use? I'm using a QAD Ultra Rest. Does anyone have problems with fletching contacting their rest?

    Yep, I’ve used a NAP Centerrest, and I had fletching contact with it. I now shoot a Cavalier Free Flight Micro and I actually still have contact. I’ve just accepted that it’s probably something about my release, because to get the arrows flying straight, the rest has to be where it is. My practice arrow fletchings look awful. :D

    Interesting. I had never heard of them before. Looks a lot like a Timberdoodle. Oh yeah, in fact, they may have sold the design to Bodoodle. Is this your rest? https://specialtyarch.com/product/bodoodle-pro-500-right-handed/

    Yes that is the rest, my understanding is that when the stocks are gone there will be no more. It is a pity because I really like those rest. Glad I have 2 of them :)

    I use a NAP Center Flipper and I have contact on my feathers also. I tried rotating the shaft for better clearance, however the feathers somehow are still getting beat up. Its like Ben said, probably my release. I thought of getting a QAD drop away but haven't had the money to invest yet. I see the Fitzgerald boys use them for their instinctive shooting.

    If you are getting contact on your feathers , I would also look at arrow spine I have a Hoyt X8 and Prime V2 STX 39" and both are the same draw length and poundage yet I need to use 500 spine (easton spine rating) arrows on the prime and 450 spine on the X8 I have no contact on either so it might not be your release at all Ozzy :)

    I use a star Hunter from back in the day. Same idea as the Tim Wells rest but I like it better!
